I've been cursed with the lifelong inability to wear a new pair of shoes without getting blisters. Really, it's awful. I can't even explain how many days I've ended walking around the city barefoot (gross), with bloody heels and painful sores to spare. Ouch.
Band-aids end up torn, and those padded blister patches always seem to get scrunched up into a sticky ball. I really thought there was no hope for me and my feetskis.
But a couple of weeks ago, I found Dr. Scholl's Blister Defense Anti-Friction Stick and it is THE BEST THING EVER. I'm not kidding: This thing has changed my life. Before I put on my shoes -- the same ones that recently cut me up, including my new flats and glittery jelly sandals -- I just glide this stuff over the spots that would typically start rubbing. And like a magical, invisible shield... I am cured. No blisters, no pain, no nada. It's incredible.
Basically, I've been raving like a blister-free lunatic about this stuff to everyone I know, and now I'm telling you. You'd be a bloody idiot (LITERALLY THOUGH UGH) not to pick up a stick.
Dr. Scholl's Blister Defense Anti-Friction Stick, $6.99, available at Drugstore.com.
